An annual event on Jack Benny's radio show, Jack takes a trip to the local department store, only to run into some familiar characters. Notice Mel Blanc in his usual role as the salesmen unfortunate enough to have to wait on Jack, again, again, and again!

Subject: Where's The Show?
What happened to this episode?
was it copy write protected?
Subject: wheres the video?
I dont see any video here, plus IMDBs page lists this episode as airing Dec 18th 1956, not December 18 1960.....
Subject: Correction to credits
Great episode with many of the classic recurring bits, but quality of this copy is very poor. Correction to credits: the nightware salesman is actually played by Charlie Cantor, and the burglar (presumably, behind the mask) is Benny Rubin.
Subject: You don't need an iPod to watch this
Simply download it and watch it on using Windows Media; it works fine. It's got a very basic Jack Benny is cheap story line but, despite that, is a very funny television episode. Many Jack Benny will probably correctly anticipate the closing, but that's probably half the fun of this episode. Well worth downloading and watching repeatedly to see "classic" television (in the good sense).
I wish this was in higher quality. I don't have an Ipod. So this is of no use to me. Nice show. Would have given a 5 if higher quality.
